Plurals are allowed, but no foreign words or words beginning with a capital. There’s at least one five-letter word. Good 9 Very Good 12 Excellent 15 SUDOKU 330 Fill the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the digits 1 to 9. HOW TO PLAY It’s like sudoku: each vertical and horizontal line has to contain the numbers 1-6, and the numbers can’t be repeated in any row or column. But it’s sudoku with a twist: The numbers in each heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must produce the number in the top corner. For example, 5+ means the numbers add up to 5, 9x means the numbers multiply to equal 9. TIP: Numbers can be repeated in a cage, as long as they are not in the same line or row. © 2017 KenKen Puzzle LLC.
